Strategies for Texas Holdem Multi-Table Limit Tournaments

Strategies for Texas Holdem Multi-Table Limit Tournaments

Texas Holdem tournaments are very popular at online casinos and poker rooms, live casinos and poker rooms, and even on TV.  Playing Limit Texas Holdem in a multi-poker table tournament requires its own strategy.

-

The first thing you have to do is consider the gap concept.  The gap concept is simply that you need a better hand to call a raise than you do to open the pot.  Position also plays a part.  If someone in early position opens, they think their hand is a winner.

-

When you get past the early rounds to the middle and late part of the poker tournament, you want turn your poker strategy from doing well over all (like winning the most money in the long run) to a short term goal of just winning pots.  You can put away your poker calculator, pot odds aren’t going to guide you here.  Since amassing poker chips with little risk is the goal, stealing the blinds really help your position and will improve your poker ranking in the tournament.

-

You want hands that have a high degree of winning.  Forget flush and straight draws.  You want high pocket pairs.  Even middle pocket pairs are more valuable than in a regular ring game.  And if you’re holding an AK or AQ, they’re also worth a lot because they will dominate most other hands.  A word of caution, you want to avoid getting into a betting war if you’re holding a dominated hand.  So you might feel good about your AJ, but if someone is very aggressive, you should back off.  You just know you’re going to spend a lot of money to find out they’re holding AK or AQ.

-

If you look at the poker cards you have in the hole and find a really good hand, like KK, then you’ve got to play it.  If someone raises, you have to play. No way can you fold this preflop. What are the odds he’s got two Aces?  You should re-raise.  It will knock a lot of people out and let him know it is going to take all his poker chips if he wants to go after you.
